Carolyn Smyth B.Sc (Chiro) DC,MRCC
Carolyn has 26 years of experience having graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth in 1991. She worked in the surrounding area ever since. Carolyn has gained a wealth of experience in different practices including holding an NHS contract for 10 years working in a multidisciplinary medical practice in Poole.
Having has three children of her own, her interest in chiropractic paediatrics led Carolyn to study and practice a form of chiropractic called NeuroImpulse Protocol (NIP). She is one of only 6 certified accredited NIP chiropractors in the UK.
Chiropractors treat problems with joints, bones and muscles and the effects they have on the nervous system. Chiropractic views health and wellbeing by focusing on the whole body rather than on individual symptoms. It recognises that the body is busy at work regulating and repairing itself. Working on all the joints of the body, but often on the spine, chiropractors use their hands to make gentle, specific adjustments to improve efficiency of the nervous system and release the body's natural healing ability. By considering your symptoms in the context of your full medical history, your lifestyle and your personal circumstances, chiropractors can provide a package of care that is evidence-based and widely recommended.
NIP has a strong emphasis on functional neurology and looks especially at the relationship between the function of the nervous system and how your body moves.
Traditional manipulation techniques aren't used - we don't 'crack' joints. Instead we use very gentle, specific pressure coupled with a very light 'impulse' that is very comfortable for people of ages, shapes and sizes. Babies, children, adults and elderly.
In 2014 Carolyn launched her first solo venture Healthfirst Chiropractic and whilst continuing to work from her base in Poole she is excited to bring her skills to the great team at Pro Fusion Therapy here in Ringwood, working together to cater for all your wellbeing needs!
